External exam

Question design is very foolhardy
NCEA changes very tardy
How come no one knew
Revision to do
Level review not robust or hardy

Daily prompt: Tardy

Exam stress is bad enough without inappropriate questions.
This year the New Zealand NCEA (National Certificate of Educational Achievement ) Level 1 Maths exam (usually sat in Year 11) was claimed to be too tough.

    I had to laugh at the pictures posted. I never had a problem with math although I didn’t have to think about what to do with English. Still, this was so amusing. Some really do feel like it’s torture.
